§ 151.3402  FLEXIBILITY IN THE ARRANGEMENT AND PLACEMENT OF LANDSCAPING AND SCREENING.
   The standards and criteria in this Chapter establish the city's objectives and levels of landscaping intensity expected. However, it should be recognized that existing vegetation and other natural features may also adequately achieve the intended standards and objectives of each section, and precise compliance with all of the numerical standards may be preempted or unnecessary because of existing or proposed conditions on the site or adjacent property. Therefore, when complying with this Chapter, the city may permit the flexible arrangement of the plant material to best achieve the intent of this Chapter and the purposes of the numerical standards, to preserve existing natural features, and to assure that other health and safety objectives and standards of the city are not compromised.
